Off the top of my head:

Batters
1. Clemente
2. Stargell
3. Parker
4. Bonds
5. Bonilla
6. Van Slyke
7. Brian Giles
8. Kendall
9. Phil Garner
10. Omar Moreno
11. Bill Madlock
12. Al Oliver
13. Mike Easler
14. Jason Bay
15. Tony Pena
16. Jeff King

Pitchers
1. Doug Drabek
2. Bert Blyleven
3. John Candelaria
4. Bruce Kison
5. Kent Tekulve
6. Jim Bibby
7. John Smiley
8. Jerry Reuss
9. Zane Smith
10. Bob Walk


All have done more as Pirates than Cutch to this point.
Stargell was nearly done with his career after the 79 world series. I would consider him before the "after 1979" group.
